So You Want To Do Boxing At Home?!

Wanna be active but don't want to go out?
Wanna be fit but don't wanna spend more?
Wanna be Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao but don't wanna spend money for the boxing gym?

Maybe Fit Boxing 2 is perfect for you.

Reasons and Excuses

I started playing Fit Boxing 2 because I was looking for an alternative way to not sign up for a gym, or a boxing gym. Actually I signed up for a gym before but well, I wasn't religiously going because well, procrastination it's not my cup of tea. I wanted to join a boxing training but living in Tokyo, you can imagine the prices are way too high for a monthly service and it's not even yet a hobby.

I wanted to get actively moving. I want to get fit. Sitting all day won't get me anywhere.

So I invested in Nintendo Switch and bought this game.

Game Highlights

The game will teach you the basic stance and the different kinds of punches. There's a trainer that will teach you the right form.

Since this is Fit Boxing 2: Rhythm and Exercise, expect that every session you will be grooving to the music. Not really dancing, more like putting your weight front and back while throwing punches. There aren't a lot of songs and I don't think you can change the music for a session. The background will also change depending on the type of music. In the above screenshots, the song was Katy Perry's Hot and Cold.

The tricky part is when you need to do combos. If you can't get the right timing on when to throw a punch, your rhythm will be off.

You gotta throw every punch like you have an enemy in front of you. That's how I play this game. If you're throwing the punch without any strength or weight or whatever it is called, most likely it will be detected by the game as a wrong kind of punch. So you gotta feel it. 😂

At first I was so conscious of my stepping, you know the front-back thing. Later on, I just don't care. Though I think I'm getting it right. Just that at first, since you're not used to it, the switching of the weight between front and back makes you uncomfortable while throwing punches.

Did I already mention that before you start and/or end the boxing sessions, there is an option to do stretching? I think this is very important so this is a plus for me.

Suggestion: More songs. It's okay if user can't choose from the list of songs, as long as there's a lot in the inventory. Since there's only less, I kept on grooving to the same music everyday.

Stats

Every after one boxing session, you'll see how well you did.

And in every game (meaning all the sessions for the day), there's a summary and even guessing your fitness age.

I thought I'm so good at jabs but turns out, I'm not. During the game, I believed I didn't miss any jab punch but the stats say otherwise. And oh, I need to work on my left uppercut. 😅

I have no complaints about this. The stats are really helpful on what I need to improve on.

Calendar and Reminders

There's a monthly calendar to see when you played the game. I won't be showing mine so you won't judge me. 😂 It's kinda nice to see it because I would always feel guilty seeing mine. 🤣

You can also set a daily alarm reminding you to start the game. Personally, I didn't set up mine so I'm not sure if the Switch will make a sound even when it's on sleep mode.

Trainers

There are a total of 10 instructors that you can choose from the game. You can also choose what kind of clothes they wear if you don't like their fashion sense. It's free to change instructors.

I don't think there's any difference with what the instructors teach. They are all saying the same thing. "Visualize the punch before you throw.", that's what they kept on saying whenever you have a session.

Suggestion: It would have been nice if each instructor teaches something unique. Right now, choosing an instructor is just a preference - whether you like to have a male or female instructor.

Gears

I have actually invested on a good controller grip. I think it's perfect for boxing. I got in Amazon for 699 yen or around 5 USD.

Conclusion

Like every other game, Fit Boxing 2 has its flaws and things to improve. But it's an overall great game if you wanna do boxing at home.

Though I still think going to a real boxing gym is a better option. Well, only if you're really committed to it. The fees are more expensive than buying a Switch and getting this game so make sure to stay committed once you start going to the boxing gym.

Boxing is good. It's a nice hobby. It helps me relive stress after a day's work. But after working at home, I don't really like to go out so for now, this game works for me.

How about you? What do you do at home to make you stay active?


Thanks for reading!
See you around! じゃあ、またね!

It's a double workout since it is a combination of boxing and dancing due to music, I do physical exercises a week ago but suddenly I feel procrastinated and prefer to stay at home than do some blogging activities, however, once everything seems fine then I'll get back on my track.

I can understand the procrastination part. Sometimes you need someone/something to encourage you.

If for the kids, playstation might not be a good choice. Nintendo Switch is a good choice for the kids.
Switch has a lot of games good for kids, PS is more on the adult.
But it's still up to you.
Just Dance is available both in Switch and PS anyways.

Your reasoning is exactly why many moons ago I invested in a Wii Fit... ... ...I have to say, my motivation to use it did not last long at all. XD

This boxing game looks far more interesting.

I think you need more motivation to play it? Not sure.
Actually I had this game since January, and I played it at that month then stopped playing.
I went back to playing this game this month.
I don’t know why but I just thought it’s time to play the game again.

Hahaha! Please don't question its effectiveness 😂😂
I am positive that someday it will bring some results 😂

It's still better to go to the gym though, and learn the right movements there. They also have the right tools there. But maybe for beginners, or someone looking to make this a hobby, this game is a good start.

Switch can be played handheld, by its screen or using the tv as the screen.
It's hard to play using small screen so I connected it to my monitor. 😅
We don't have TV here at home but we have a big monitor so this is what I have been using.

I was also doing Just Dance before but lately di na. My room lately is a mess so there’s not enough space to dance.
Sa boxing naman konting space lang need so I’ve been doing this na lang 😅
Nice talaga yung stats, it helps to keep you in check.

Some months ago I saw the trailer for this game, and though I thought it looked pretty unique and usefull I doubted I would ever play it but somehow every now and then it come backs to my mind, I've already seen other people play in videos and stuff and it looks like it really keeps your body working so maybe in the future I'll give it a chance too since nothing seems to keep me motivated enough to exercise, maybe this game would be the key to motivate me, also it seems fun :)

Since you have thought about it anlot of times, maybe it’s time to give it a try! 😅
I was also in a dilemma before if I should buy it or not but then I realized the more I think about it, the more time I just wasted. I could have started way before. 😂
That’s just my story though.
Still I would suggest you to go for it! 😊
It helps relieve stress too.

Awww. I used to do boxing before I got pregnant. It became my training for marathons. I could have done a lot more muay Thai but then motherhood became me, so no more of those punching and kicking for me.

It's good that consoles nowadays have physical activities in the games. For now, I just content myself with the dance pad. It became a bonding routine for me and my daughter.

Ohh dance pad!
I used to play with that too. It’s like a bonding between me and my classmates.
I think bonding with your child through dancing is a trend lately or maybe it’s just me 😅
My friend who’s also a mom and her son are doing Just Dance in Switch. It’s also one of their bonding activities. 😊

Ohhh muay thai! I really want to do that too! Wish I could.

Is this like something you can connect sa TV or sa projector? Sounds fun and yeah I like Boxing too. I wanted to enroll in a boxing class nga din sana but Dang its too expensive! Atm, I do treadmill. Boring nung una but I have gotten used to it and to help me less get bored I turned the music so loud while I run. LOL. Btw, is it expensive? Your Nintendo switch I mean.

I connected my Switch to my monitor. We don't have TV. Projector, hmmm sure if it has the HDMI it can be used too.
Boxing class is really expensive. I can totally understand.
I also can't just waste my money into something I'm not yet so committed or won't do well.

Treadmill.. hmm, I usually get bored with that. That's nice that you aren't bored with it. You can also watch tv while doing that.
